Without an aroma or fragrance life would miss something so vital and without it the world would be lonely, isolated and
very difficult to live in. Smell is the hidden, often forgotten and most underestimated of our senses and perhaps the
most important of all. We need smells in order to connect to the earth, to other people and ourselves. Smelling is the
ability to listen through the nose and learn from what we are smelling from the molecules of emotion that transform
common scents into complex integrated experiences.
Without some form of therapy or process, we would not be able to fully understand, reveal or comprehend our human
behavior in order to account for our actions & take responsibility for how we are feeling and what we are creating. The
therapy in this case is not analysis, counselling, psychotherapy, intellectual processing or coaching as these can so easily
become more about analysis than a therapeutic experience. The therapy here is specific to self-awareness and healing.
Aroma + Therapy goes beyond scents and reaches the core of who we are by integrating what we feel with what we
smell, allowing for healing within, through the connection of memory to our past. It combines smell and
emotional/psychological/spiritual interpretation as it relates to essential oils. To smell is one thing, to comprehend the
significance of a specific oil or blend, is another. Without this union, fragrance is something that smells good or will
make your home or body feel good but will not fully heal you. The ability to smell something; to know what you are
smelling; to visualize the plant and then connect this experience internally, will change the way you experience who you
are. This is beyond understanding and is a way of connecting to nature and learning what nature is communicating to us
in the form of consciousness. Aromatic plants, after all, pass through the olfactory gateway, bypassing the mind, putting
us in touch with how we feel in order to heal.
